    160-185mm Calipers

    Can I use a BB7 caliper that came with a 160mm rotor on a 185mm rotor provided I have spacers moving it a bit outward? Or do I need a 185mm specific caliper?

    Thanks!

    You need a 185mm specific ROTOR
    Any BB7 Caliper
    And the applicable 185mm adapter. (post mount or IS, F or R)

    Any Avid caliper will work with any Avid Rotor.... provided that you have the right adapter.
